Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Dry each chicken wing with a paper towel to remove moisture.
  3. In a mixing bowl, stir the smoked paprika, Cajun spice mix, salt, and pepper. Add the chicken to the mixing bowl, and toss to coat in the spice mix.
  4. Remove the chicken wings from the mixing bowl and place them on a wire rack set over a baking tray. Bake in the oven for 25 minutes, or until crispy on one side.
  5. While the wings are crisping up in the oven, add all the ingredients for the dip in a bowl and give it a mix.
  6. Prepare the salad in a bowl or arrange it directly on the serving plates. Drizzle with olive oil.
  7. Remove the wings from the oven, flip so that the alternate side can get crispy, and bake again for 20 minutes or until super crispy. Serve immediately with the dipping sauce and salad.

Tips

Keep the leftovers in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

    Fantastic food! I enjoyed it immensely with a home-made Cajun seasoning blend that left out the heat, since I don't enjoy spicy-hot foods at all. I'm grateful for all the seasoning blends available from Diet Doc (though for this one I went elsewhere). Still I am so glad to have options for so many delicious foods. Garam masala without the heat comes to mind. I am happy to have this opportunity to applaud the work of you talented recipe builders. Couldn't have lost 85 pounds without you. :-)
